There’s One in Every Family Blend

Owen Roe’s, 2009, Abbot’s Table is where the whole family shows up.  From Zin to Sangio, Malbec to Grenache – they’re all  book-ended between big mama Cab Sauv and  “uncle” Cab Frank.  The cool thing is, they get along and seem genuinely happy to see each other. Ripe red raspberry ribbons through red current and juicy pomegranate. Kickin’, blended, relaxed and balanced; even eccentric Aunt Blaufrankish who seems content if not calm pointing out “why yes, Jeffrey, that is a human ear.” Speaking of velvet… tannins are soft and deep and smooth. This wine is astute and maniacal- offering divergent beliefs all within striking distance.  It truly is the best accoutrement for lively table banter.  Enjoy!
